Hi. I’ve never really posted anything to this site before bit I’ve visited regularly over the last five years. I’m just completing a short film which in a very distant and abstract way was inspired by my admiration for the Panzer Dragoon series.?
As with PD, It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world, long after the demise of a vast civilisation. As in PD, the inhabitants of the world know little about its origin. It’s just foggier, wetter and more British than the PD universe.
For many practical and narrative reasons, The relationship between boy and dragon evolved into a relationship between boy and a flying machine.?
Panzer dragoon references were heavily used in the costume design process.
I took inspiration from the way the games used Panzereze, to adjust the language in my film to help make the world more believable.?
The final film will have almost no obvious parallels with the Panzer Dragoon, yet the PD world influenced almost every aspect at a very early stage. I just wanted to share this to let you know that even this long after its release, the Panzer Dragoon series still relevant and influencing artists across the globe. Thank you for keeping its world alive for people like me to reference and draw inspiration from. I hope you like the little trailer and hopefully the final film when I post it soon.
(it won’t let me publish a URL for some reason. I’ll post it as a reply (or you can google ‘Skyborn trailer’ to see it)
